A morning walk before the rain today gave 23 species of birds along the Ridge footpath, across the River Ash and over the golf course.
Fieldfare and redwing were evident throughout the walk with good views of yellowhammer being had in hedgerows (shown above.)
A covey of red legged partridge were flushed from the same hedgerow as were a dozen pheasants. An irregular garden visitor was seen this morning: a coal tit at the feeders. A solitary great spotted woodpecker flew overhead and 3 green woodpeckers were recorded.
